Boil Water Notices

Boil water notice

Update (20 September):

Some of our water supplies are feeling the pressure after the recent heavy rains.

The Suburban supply is experiencing some high turbidity. A precautionary boil water notice remains in place.
 
The Kincaid supply has shut down as it is designed to do and is now running on storage. We're asking residents to use water wisely so that the storage doesn't run out.
 
All other water supplies are working well.

Current Boil Water Notices: Suburban and East Coast 

If you are on the either of these water supplies please boil all drinking/cooking water for at least 1 minute before you use it.

This includes water for:

• Drinking
• Cooking
• Making Ice
• Brushing Teeth
• Washing Dishes

If you have friends or relatives living in these areas please help pass the word by checking to make sure they know they need to boil their water.

We know living with Boil Water Notices can be frustrating. We’re doing everything we can to improve water quality and remove the notices as soon as possible whilst keeping people healthy.

We’ll update people on where how long works are expected to take as soon as we can.

Background:

Boil water notices were lifted for Oaro, Peketa, Fernleigh and Kincaid water supply schemes in mid-August. 

Some of our water supplies remain fragile and work to strengthen them will continue for some time. Future weather events or work to put in long-term solutions may mean we have to put boil water notices back in place in the future.
